Hi, just had a cat disaster; current tab approx 15000kr as we hadn't organised pet insurance yet as we've only just arrived. Has anyone organised pet insurance and could maybe recommend what needs doing!

Thanks

my wife and I just moved to Sweden. All we needed to do was get a vet certificate stating that our dog was in good health and then we got insurance.

We are with IF (www.if.se or 0771 655 655). Our quotation from them was around SEK 2000 per year.

Hope this helps.

2000 sek per year. ohmy.gif I haven't organised it yet but was paying £35 per year in the uk for 2 dogs and a cat. I'll have to pull a bank job to fund it here in Sweden.

Jeez 2000kr a year seems alot. Unless you have no deductable that is. We have pet insurance for our dog through Folksam, just under 700kr a year with a 1500kr deductable. Price will vary on breed and age of dog im sure.

Princess P...who were your insurers in the UK? I used to pay 26 p/m to Direct LLine for an 8 year old dog. A the time, I was in credit due to the claims...

We use www.agria.se for our two dogs.
I can't remember how much it cost but I remember it was a lot more than in Ireland. At the time we took out the policies we thought this crowd offered the best cover. We only had the insurance a couple of months when one of my dogs broke a nail which cost over 2000SEK to be treated. They paid out promptly which made us feel better about the high premium. Vets are so expensive over here so it's a must to have insurance if you have a pet.

If is about 500 PA for our cat.
We also had a 20000 SEK disaster with our other cat who was uninsured but we managed to get that knocked down to 2000 SEK and a spade.

Ha ha, some may be tempted! Mr Stripes is still in Intensive care on the drip etc so we're giving up on the final bill now. We've only been here 4 weeks and he's never been ill before (or eaten pieces of rubber...). C'est la vie!

That was with Tesco Pet Insurance. The dogs were puppies when we took out the policy.

Hi,

As this topic is for long time ago I want to repeat the question. I have a puppy (1,5 years old - Female - Terrier ) which will come to sweden by mid Nov. I am student and will live here for next two years. I am going to apply for an insurance for here and Agria is offered to me by some friends. but this site is in swedish and in some pages, translation doesnt work. any body can help and advise:
- any other insurance provider with better terms and condition
- monthly cost
- insurance coverage (I am looking for full coverage)
- is there a kind of international insurance so I can use it in another country like australia?

thanks a lot

Be very careful to read the small print, I know a guy who took out pet insurance yet still. ended up paying a fortune in vet fees.
Either way you get ripped off in Sweden with both vets and ins companies virtually having awarded themselves a licence to print money in vast quantities.
